Robbie Bachman was married to his wife named Chrissy. He was the youngest brother of Randolph Charles Bachman. Randy co-founded The Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive.
The Bachmann brothers grew up playing together at their home in Winnipeg, Canada, and became natural collaborators. It was Randy who gave Robbie his first job, recruiting the drummer to join him and bassist Fred Turner in the band Brave Belt in 1971.
A third Bachman, guitarist Tim, joined Brave Belt a year later. After two unsuccessful albums, Brave Belt was dropped from their label. Undeterred, the group is looking for a new home. At the suggestion of management, they began to be called Bachman–Turner Overdrive. The same band but with a new name, Bachman–Turner Overdrive released their self-titled debut in 1973.
Commercial success continued to elude the band, but later that year they released a second LP, Bachman–Turner Overdrive II. This album featured BTO’s first Top 40 single, “Let It Ride,” which peaked at No. 23 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album’s second single would launch the group to stardom: “Takin’ Care of Business.”

Is BTO and Reunion discontinued?
BTO disbanded in 1980, but reformed with Randy again as frontman in 1983. Robbie chose not to take part in the reunion, citing disagreements over business and trademark issues. As such, Bachmann–Turner overdrivereleased in 1984, would be the band’s only studio album not to feature Robbie’s playing.
The drummer eventually returned to Bachman–Turner Overdrive in 1988 and remained with the band until they broke up again in 2005. After a hiatus, Randy and Turner revived BTO again in 2009, but due to ongoing legal battles, Robbie turned down the chance to rejoin the group.
